For a long while on my journey, I used to get hurt physically, a lot. From the age of 11 till 26 I hurt the same ankle/foot at least once a year, sometimes more. That is more than a dozen times over the course of that 15 years. When we're looking at energy that usually signifies an imbalance in our root. Our root is our place of safety, security and balance. It can sometimes translate into this physical manifestation of the imbalance. Also, when looking at energy when we agree with something, for me it was a few things, but for this post I'll use the belief that I was just clumsy. We attract the experiences that match our beliefs. Even if those beliefs are limiting. These experiences further continue our loops, until we become aware that we agreed to something, and have the intention to release those beliefs and shift our operations in conjunction. With the belief I was 'just clumsy' it put me in a place of having no control to not get hurt, and furthered not being able to change that I was getting injured all the time. I didn't know where the imbalance was, or how I could take my power back. I didn't even know there was power lost.
I am thankful to have the awareness of some operating patterns that are still transforming and limiting beliefs that are still in the alchemizing process. Last week I had a series of things pop up, where I know I uprooted (ones that I look forward to working through with one my mentors/healing allies soon). In the midst of that all, I got hurt. I tripped and sprained that very same ankle, again. It's been 6 years. Time to do some more root work, time for me to get deeper and gain more wisdom around those things I am on a journey with, myself.
Working in this place of compassion, I'm so glad to have the awareness that I do. Free of the judgment. Now moving with the curiosity to go deeper and take the lessons I need to gain from these experiences.
I could have gone a different way, I could have bumped into the awareness of how I was operating and stayed in fear and judgement of being there, but in truth the awareness adorned in compassion felt liberating. In figuring out where I was caught, it allowed me to love and honor the part of me that needed some attention. I could have beat myself up, talked it to death, operated in the old paradigms. I chose not to. I am so proud of that. Taking accountability allows us to have the power in how we show up. Sometimes that growth feels uncomfortable, but truly on the other side of the discomfort is so much freedom.
